Water logged

It is most encouraging to read that the Environment and Conservation Minister has deferred logging at the headwaters and proximity of the beautiful Sabine Falls in the Otway Ranges pending the deliberations and recommendations of a committee of interested parties.

Let us hope that a conclusion is reached that will ensure the continuing quality and quantity of water from our valuable and over- stressed catchment areas. Without healthy forests it is impossible to conceive of sufficient healthy water supplies and, therefore, healthy people.
